Merry Christmas From My Home To Yours!

Just a quick post today lovelies, as I wanted to pop on here to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all of the very best wishes for the year ahead.

I’ve been celebrating this Christmas at home with my small family.  We started our day with plenty of gifts and I’ve got to say that this year, we were all thoroughly spoiled.

Brunch followed with a generous helping of Dip and Share Eggs which I found the recipe for online here.

We played a couple of rounds of Articulate afterwards which provided many laughs.  We haven’t played a board game at Christmas since I was a child but since we tend to always have a mid afternoon slump of boredom, I thought it would be a good idea to buy a game to play.  We thoroughly enjoyed this game and it really got our brains working.

Since there was just the three of us and no children around, we decided to have our Christmas dinner a little later in the day so before we put the veg on, we watched A Muppets Christmas Carol which is one of my favourite Christmas films.

Christmas dinner was, as always, absolutely epic and we all sank into the sofa afterwards nursing food babies while watching more Christmas films.

Now its almost midnight and I’m about to go to bed.

I hope you’ve all had an absolutely smashing Christmas Day surrounded by those you love.

Do let me know what you’ve been up to in the comments.

    Ooh Articulate is a great game for Christmas day! Should definitely get my family playing that instead of just sitting round the TV xD Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

    Love the look of the dip and share eggs. I spotted that recipe the other day and it's definitely on my list of future makes. I love board games, and my family would have played them, but the OH and his family aren't fans unfortunately.
